Question on 9.2 surround setup


Recommended Posts

I installed the 9.2 surround and now that's it's getting close to D day & I noticed none of my movies are more then 7.2 so I'm wondering how this will work. If my bluray is 7.2 with dolby atmos will that still hit all my speakers or will my sides or rears be left out of the mix? No where on line to get that answer... That I found. In a month or two I will know, so if anyone else has that concern I'll share.

  • Sotaboy changed the title to Question on 9.2 surround setup

@Sotaboy I have a very humble theatre which involves a Sony 55” 4K 📺, a couple of 4K blu-ray players + some non-4K blu-ray players, 4 bookcase style speakers hooked up to my stereo receiver & TV set and I’m a happy camper, even though I wish I could have the “full” home theatre experience... but I’m content with my set-up as I’m not as picky or hyper that I do not own the “better” home theatre equipment! :)


& how about you? 🧐

Big movie family here, never had a home theater my setup was exactly like yours. But now I'm taking the jump. I had to finish a basement this last summer so I planned for one and did all in wall speakers when I framed and drywalled. I'm turning 40 with a young one and growing up my parents were divorced so I had the weekend father but some of the best times were going to his house for pizza and movies weekends. We did a lot of other stuff but that was ALWAYS on the to do list. I'm hoping my little guy will enjoy the same he's young now so it's cartoons and family movies. We'll see how I like everything after some time, I'm super excited right now but we'll see if the kiddo can keep his chocolate fingers off of the 144" screen, as well as how the equipment holds up throughout the years. My only pricing complaint is the JVC RS2000 I could go cheaper but I'm a sucker for a crispy picture. I just feel like that could be the possible "why did I spend that much" in 3 years when newer stuff comes out cheaper. I've learned a few things in doing the build that maybe I would change now but it has worked out so far. It was hard getting straight answers on products and equipment when doing the build. So I think some of this is straight trial and error take the screen it's $5k and I'm hoping it will work because if it doesn't or I don't like it, it's $ down the drain (and I won't have another $5k to drop on another one) this is taking all my play money for the next few years im sure lol. But I figure if I sell the house that stuff will stay so hopefully it it holds up & will retain some of its value in the sale.
